First Grade

Teacher: Tammy Presnell

Make Items More Accessible

My students would highly benefit from additional storage space in the classroom. An extra storage cabinet would allow for more age-appropriate material easily accessible in the classroom. Our current cabinet has bowed shelves. Currently, I personally cart extra resources and manipulatives to and from school due to limited storage space in the classroom and school office.”

Third Grade

Teacher: Beth Cheshier

Take A Seat

I teach an energetic, spirited group of 12 students. For many of my students sitting still for an extended amount of time is strenuous and though each individual expresses a strong sense of enthusiasm to learn, they often have difficulty maintaining focus for a duration of time.

A wobble chair or a Bitty Bottom cushion is proven to create a learning environment which allows students to move about while staying seated.

Please help me support my group of students by offering them a fun and safe chair that can’t tip over. The chairs are designed to increase blood to the brain, and thereby quiets the requirement for fidgety kids to move. It is a winner of multiple awards, including the Academics’ Choice Award 2013 and Family Choice Award 2014;

Also, it would be helpful to have a projector more accessible to teachers in the younger grades to display photos and videos larger from our computers to a wall/board. Visuals are a key element to our students in gaining knowledge and keeping their attention.”Projector

Fifth Grade

Teacher: Connie Goff

Help Store Knowledge

I could really use a sturdy cabinet. The plastic ones are always on the verge of collapsing and cannot hold all of our needed supplies.  Teachers at Grace Academy tote lots of supplies to and from home every work day. Having a sturdy, roomy cabinet, could insure that classroom materials are ready and handy.”

Sixth/Seventh Grade

Teacher: Catherine Turner

Help Students Write On

My students would highly benefit from a large magnetic white board and individual white boards. A large magnetic board is much needed in the classroom for presentation purposes and could also be used as a screen, allowing visual aids to projected and clearly viewed. Individual white boards would eliminate the need for scrap paper and allow students to write practice sentences for grammar/literature.

Algebra I

Teacher: Paul Domermuth

Get Functional

Graphing calculators allow students to study graphing of lines and other polynomial functions without having to make every graph by hand. They also allow students to learn how to use a scientific/graphing calculator before attending the high school. Once at the high school level, there would be a steep learning curve in math and science classes if students have not had any exposure to such a calculator.“
